Hyundai continues testing the new gen Veloster. Spied again for the second time was the performance variant of the Korean hatchback called the Veloster N. It has lost some faux cladding compared to its previous sighting.

The test mule carries an evolutionary upgrade over the current model. There are now sharper, more aggressive lines, especially at the front. The cascading grille is very similar to the one seen on the recently introduced Hyundai i30 N. However, the front bumper and air vents are unique to the Veloster. The headlamps look redesigned, although it’s hard to tell the difference under the heavy cladding.

The characteristic door-layout of the Veloster is carried forward. The camouflage fails to hide the Veloster’s flared wheel arches. The large sporty alloy wheels confirm that it is a performance variant. There is also a large wing mounted atop the tailgate. The high mounted tail lamps now look sleeker with a new lighting signature. The aggressive rear bumpers  still wear sporty designs and the dual circular exhaust mounted on either side of the diffuser screams out performance. Also visible is the red accent strip near the diffuser similar to the one seen on the i30 N. There are no visuals of the interior available as it is whizzing past on the Nurburgring. However, a slight peek inside the car confirms Recaro sports seats and a roll cage at the back.

The new-generation Veloster is expected to adopt a new platform. It will allow the manufacturer to make the hatch lighter and stiffer. There is no official word yet, but it will get a newly developed 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder which does duty in the new i30N. The power output could either be 250bhp or 275bhp. The six-speed manual transmission would send power to the front wheels only.

Hyundai remains tight-lipped about the debut details of the new generation Veloster. The standard variant is expected to debut next year, while the performance N variant would join the line-up later.
